Fascia (FASH-ah) is a thin but strong tissue that wraps around every muscle in your body and the structures inside the muscles. It also surrounds other structures in your body, including organs, nerves and blood vessels. Fascia forms a body-wide network of connective tissue that’s essential for proper function.

Like muscle tissue, fascial tissue can become injured, inflamed and painful. Myofascial release practitioners say the fascia can form adhesions, which are places where it’s bunched up and stuck together, causing the fascia to pull on other structures, create pain and impair function.

You know that white, filmy layer on the outside of a chicken breast? That’s what we’re talking about.

Using specialist and gentle techniques to release restrictions in the fascia, this therapy works well along side clinical, sports and Thai massage or as a stand alone treatment.

Its is also a very effective therapy as an alternative for Fybromyalgia, Chronic fatigue and M.E sufferers. In fact it is safe enough to treat most ailments.
